Preab Meadar Rhythm and Rhyme
Veteran Traditional music innovators Lorcán Mac Mathúna and Daire Bracken combine with sean nós dancers Liam Scanlon and Caoimhe Ní Mhaolagáín to create a mesmerising conversation of rhythm, between voice and fiddle, and Traditional dance. Based on Lorcán and Daire’s ground-breaking new suite of ‘dance-songs’, Preab Meadar, together with specially choreographed dance steps, this performance presents a truly unique combination of vocal, instrumental, and dance traditions.
Preab Meadar is based on the meters from a medieval Gaelic tradition known as the ‘Dán Díreach’. From this ancient and mysterious source comes a new tradition of electrifying rhythms. Drawing on inspiration from old and contemporary traditions, and from village dance celebrations which were once common all over Europe, In Tandem presents a visual and aural feast of dance songs that will have your toes twitching and lips humming. Intrigued? Well wait till you see and hear it!
